While summer at the beach is, hands-down, my favorite time of year, fall is my second favorite season and we were lucky to catch the beginning of it during our trip to Japan. Weather-wise it was extremely pleasant–on our third day temperatures dropped to 15 degrees Celsius during the day and 10 degrees Celsius at night–making it perfect for dressing up, taking long scenic walks and enjoying the outdoors (along with having nightly rounds of snacks and sake al fresco at our hotel’s terrace with friends before turning in :-))
Love the bright yellow colors of the trees in the park!
